Casa Carlos- Walk to Plaza Hot Tub Authentic Adobe Taos Historic District

Vacation home in Taos with kitchen and patio
This is a lovely 2 bedroom 1 bath property. Large King bedroom, 2nd bedroom with queen bed, luxurious bath, living room, dining room, kitchen with laundry, outdoor walled garden with hot tub, deck/patios and pond. This property is no longer pet friendly.

Town – 3 blocks to Taos Plaza, 18 miles to Taos Ski Valley. Easy walk to shops, restaurants and galleries. National Register of Historic Places. Professionally landscaped and enclosed yard.

Casa Carlos, dating to the early 1800s, is one of the few properties in Taos available for rental that is listed in both the National Register of Historic Places (United States Department of Interior) and the New Mexico State Register of Cultural Properties. The former home and studio of Charles “Carlos” Berninghaus, a noted Taos artist and son of Oscar Berninghaus, who was one of the founders of the Taos art colony in the 1920s. This beautiful example of an adobe casita was authentically restored and beautifully landscaped by its former owner, the founder of Taos’ El Monte Sagrado Resort. The interior, exterior and grounds have been carefully preserved and methodically tended to make this home a treasure for returning guests who call Casa Carlos their “home away from home”. A complete, historically sensitive renovation of all interior spaces was completed in 2020. A rare feature in the high desert is the home’s lush garden, which features a gorgeous pond, trickling water, shade trees, diverse and flowering plant life, visits from many beautiful varieties of birds, and a grassy area. A private hot tub, multiple seating areas, and an outdoor gas grill are also features of the garden. The current owners have refurnished the home in colonial period Mexican, Indian, Indonesian/Dutch and Romanian antique furnishings, as well as original art and print photography from Mexico and the Southwest.
The home features a beautiful and large principal King bedroom and a 2nd bedroom containing a queen size bed, a mock kiva fireplace and historic charm.

The home is an easy stroll into town and Taos Plaza for meals, or utilize the home’s fully equipped modern kitchen to dine in, or grill outside and dine al fresco in the garden. The home is stocked with games, puzzles, DVDs/movies, and cable/Blue Ray entertainment system for family time and relaxation in the beautifully furnished living area, which features coved viga ceilings, a kiva fireplace, and abundant natural light.

Casa Carlos will restore your senses and “recharge your batteries” in a gorgeous and authentic home of history, character, and Northern New Mexican charm. “Nuestra casa es su casa/Our home is your home”.

Charming Casa Carlos
Property was lovely. The location was perfect. The caretakers, Bill and Linda were great. The kitchen and pantry were well stocked. Plenty of towels. The Casa did get a little warm for us during the day but might be fine for others (76 degrees). The indoor seating options were not that comfortable and the bed was too firm for us. But we are older and have arthritis so it might be fine for younger folks.
